To make Silica Connection water, add 1/2 teaspoon of Silacure powder to 1 quart of distilled water and bring to a boil, then stir for about 3 minutes. You must use distilled water because it dissolves better. Do not boil the water in aluminum pans and do not microwave Silica Connection. Some silica may still settle out, but if that happens just stir or shake it. The whole purpose is to dissolve the silica in distilled water so as to increase the bioavailability of silica for absorption into the blood stream. I then drink it like a hot tea or cool it and fill my water bottle with this solution. I try to drink it throughout the day and not all at once.
